Acceptance

the first step in overcoming

Traumatic childhood events such as abuse, neglect, witnessing experiences such as crime, parental conflict, mental illness, and substance abuse can create dangerous levels of stress and derail healthy brain development; resulting in long-term effects on learning, behavior and health. A growing network of leaders in research, policy and practice are developing approaches to prevent childhood trauma, known as adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), and mitigate their impact through building resilience.

Improvements in public policy can prevent ACEs. Preventing the consequences starts with knowing your risks.
